From the jetty

The view from our jetty

Is sometimes alive with colour and mist and geese.

Geese

Sometimes, it offers minimalism

And quiet contemplation.

Bird at dawn

One of my favourite moments

Is when the mist leaches the world of colour

And flings me right into the middle

Of a Chinese silk painting.

Heron

  28. If I did not know better, I would think that last was an authentic silk painting. All so beautifully capture the moods of Autumn on the water. And because of the last one particularly, I will be looking with fresh eyes at gray misty days.
